OSHA Reports it ‘Has Suspended’ all ‘Implementation’ and ‘Enforcement’ of Biden’s Vaccine Mandate

On Tuesday, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the implementation and enforcement of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for private employers. The decision comes after a federal court blocked the measure.

OSHA’s website page which updates the COVID Vaccine Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) reads: “While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.”

National Review reports that just last week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit fully blocked Biden’s executive order. The order mandated all companies with over 100 workers implement a vaccine mandate for all their employees.

The court ordered OSHA to “take no steps to implement of enforcing” the vaccine mandate “until further court order.”

On Thursday, November 4, 2021, OSHA’s ETS website published covid-19 vaccination and testing requirements for private employers with 100 or more employees throughout the United States.

On November 6, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, issued a preliminary ruling “staying” implementation of the ETS pending further briefing in the court. November 12, the court entered an opinion which “signaled in the strongest of possible terms that tit was poised to find that the rule does exceed OSHA’s statutory authority in several ways and is unconstitutional” reports National Law Review.

U.S. Surgeon General Issues Rare Public Advisory on the Emerging Youth Mental Health Crisis

In a rare move, the U.S. Surgeon General issued a public health advisory warning of the emerging youth mental health crisis. The 53-page advisory was released Tuesday by Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy.

Murthy says the emerging crisis has been exacerbated by pandemic hardships. Not only are symptoms of depression and anxiety skyrocketing, so are displays of negative emotions and behavior.

“Advisories are reserved for significant public health challenges that need the nation’s immediate awareness and action” the document states, in an attempt to demonstrate the severity of the warning.

The document goes on to call for a broad-based and rapid response from the government, social media companies, community groups, schools, teachers, parents and even students – and listed resources available to them.

Depression and anxiety have doubled, with an entire 25% of youth experiencing depressive symptoms and 20% experiencing anxiety symptoms. Negative emotions or behaviors like impulsivity and irritability are also increasing.

The advisory notes that the pandemic-related safety measures which reduced in-person interactions among children friends, social supports and professionals such as teachers, school counselors, pediatricians and child welfare workers resulted in isolation which made it “harder to recognize signs of child abuse, mental health concerns and other challenges.”

While children of all backgrounds have always faced and are at risk for mental health challenges, the nearly two years of disruption from the pandemic “took a toll and worsened their mental health – especially for such groups as immigrants, students with disabilities and students of color from low-income families.”

Also, many students of all ages and levels are having trouble adjusting when in-person schooling resumes.
